No rest period for Emilio will be welcomed


I know I’m not the only one with a pavlovian dislike of hearing Celtic players mentioned in international match reports in June.  Preseason training is only four weeks away, quickly followed by the Champions League qualifying round, so these weeks should be for rest and recuperation.  The one exception to the rule, this summer, is Emilio Izaguirre, who is set to play two World Cup qualifiers for Honduras over the next two weeks.

Emilio missed most of last season through injury and then sat out much of the remaining part of the campaign due to the impressive form of Charlie Mulgrew.  He is the one player in the squad who benefit from competitive football to restore his edge, and confidence.

    According to reports, one third of divorces filed last year contained the word ‘Facebook’.



    It has been speculated amongst most psychologists that Facebook is the cause of the exponential growth of narcissism in Western culture in recent years.



    CQN is to blame for giving lunatics are certain cache.

  2. Vinibhoy - Named Neil Lennon on his birth certificate on

    Anyone heard about Alan Thompson being sacked?

  3. Green`s statement is a wonderful thing…… if his objective is to further alienate fans of all Scottish football clubs.




  4. Well, the HUN might be short of money, they might be short on dignity, but going by that statement they aint short on brass neck.



    It really is time to shoot this rotten twitching corpse in the head and put us all out it’s misery

    You really have to laugh at the huns



    Equally, the alternative sanction of expulsion from the Scottish Cup is itself a very serious punishment which would also have a severe impact on Scottish football as well as on our Club.



    They expelled themselves from the SC last season at almost the first time of asking and as for the impact on Scottish football.



    No big deal.

    “We will be considering with our legal team the best way forward after the public announcement.”



    Open threat to continue through civil court



    should be met with expulsion, the only way to nulify association and nulify international sanction.

    Greeny spews the same sort of pompous tripe as his undoubted mentor,Minty and his glove-puppet Whytie.


    He doesn’t even have the wreckage of a club yet via his loanshark offer and he’s talkin’ all statesman-like.


    There must’ve been an emergency extrajudicial meeting of the ludge today to get the stitch-up in place over the extended Jubbly w/end while the proletarian orcs are basking in the sunshine of Gloriana.


    He,in his sense-of-entitlement arrogance thinks we’re all gonna swallow this nonsense.



  8. Greeny Gobsmacker might as well’ve said,”What is the sound of one hand clapping?”


    Like the wind whistlin’ round Ibrokes next season.

  9. Just back from another superb Vogue CSC


    trip to the races and overnight in Liverpool.


    Was in the pub with with VP at 9.30 this morning.

  10. Didn’t someone post the Charlie boys CVA was dependant upon them being in every tournament?



    Ban from the SC = big deal for HUN, not for Scottish football

  11. Anyone wishing to escape the day’s highlights of pomp and circumstance……. Brazil .v. Mexico about to kick-off on ESPN.

  12. James Forrest is Neil Lennon! We are ALL Neil Lennon! on

    Is it just my read on it, or is this muppet threatening to go BACK to court in an effort to push their luck even further?



    Am I the only one who’s read on this is that if the appeal panel acts in a way they don’t like that they’ll appeal the original CoS verdict on the grounds that they wanted it referred back to a new judicial panel hearing in the first place?



    He is actually threatening another court case. That’s my read on it.

  13. James Forrest is Neil Lennon! We are ALL Neil Lennon! on




    Read your post after I put up my own. Exactly how I see it.



    An open and naked threat.

    James F…..,


    can smell a new article in he wind :oD)))

  15. Gene’s a Bhoys name..



    The thing is though, all the muck you’d have to get through first






    That’s kinda what I thought, after I stopped laughing :-)

  16. Green thinks a ban from the SC is punishment enough? A Hun I work with was spouting this rubbish.


    Quite apart from the fact we now have the guilty being able to decide their own punishment (New one on me), did someone not post yesterday that a team was disqualified from the SC for having a player who was banned come on as a sub in extra time when they were winning 7-1?


    That and the fact TFOD may as well have been banned last year as the were knocked out pretty early on.

    contaminated brass is about 50p / lb – they’ll just need twice as much

    My take on Green’s statement is that he is trying to make a big thing of a Scottish Cup ban when that’s what he would see as a result. I hope Regan is not involved with this crap.

  19. •-:¦:-•** -:¦:- sparkleghirl :¦:-.•**• -:¦:-• on

    because the appellate tribunal in its written judgement made clear the view they held on the appropriate alternative sanction to be imposed in the event that the transfer ban was successfully challenged.



    Sorry – it’s hot and my brain is fried, but – did they?

  20. Don’t punish us too severely – it will hurt you more than it will hurt us.



    You know what? I’m willing to take that chance. Terminate with extreme prejudice is the phrase that comes to mind.

  21. Can they not what an absolute nonsense the monarchy represents.


    The ridiculous idea that a person is seen to better


    because of their birthright.


    Preaching to the choir i know.


    Bring on a republic.

  22. Billy's Bhoy on

    Ernie Lynch


    I see u have been spouting your SNP are anti Catholic nonsense and how there are no Catholics in the Cabinet.


    Two words “Frank Mulholland ” lord advocate appointed by Salmond. To appoint a Catholic ask top law officer for Scotland doesn’t appear anti Catholic to me.

  23. ThisIsTheOne on

    Just cleaned-up after being used as a paintbrush all day. Logged on just in time to get the statement from El Verde.



    Looks like a wee threat from charlie to the tribunal. Mibees when he’s actually the owner of an rfc(IA) share he can be taken seriously. Nice one chuck – the tie suits you so well.




  24. Cringeworthy springs to mind regards everything that comes out of that cesspit.



    They must be the most disgusting entity that clings to life in football.



    Regan and Doncaster are cowards if they give in to this.



    But we already know they are cowards.

    Just watched it on Youtube, it’s a heavy cross the drink..



    God love him..

  26. sixtaeseven: No NewClub in SPL and it's Non-Negotiable! on

    I get the impression that Hughie Green’s statement was written be Duph and Ffelps.



    Just take yer medicine and gies a’ peace, fur God’s sake.
